Basically just a place to take photos and relax. Cute park near City Hall, the fountain is beautiful when it's on. Don't be surprised if you see homeless people penny pinching in the water.

Nice little park tucked away in downtown Philly. It makes for a great photo op. Nice fountain and skyline backdrop. Great mix of people and enjoyed having some food trucks nearby. The view from the park down Benjamin Franking Parkway to the Museum of Art is spectacular with all the green trees.

there is nothing to see! the "LOVE" sculpture is really small! At the park you gonna meet a lot of homeless people... :( it's not a fun place to stay)! If you are planning to walk around can be a stop for 10 min at least!

If visiting Philly, you have to see it. Go during the day and beware of the scammers & crazies. Occasionally there are radical protestors, just use common sense & watch surroundings.

It's true there isn't a lot to do here other than sit by the fountain or have your photo taken by the 'Love' statue but sometimes that's enough! At the end of a long day sightseeing it was a place to go to reflect, feel the cool spray from the fountain and watch the world go by. There are some... More

It was very relaxing by the water fountain and the landscaping. We didn't see any homeless people when we went. The statue was a bit smaller than I anticipated, but it was great seeing an iconic landmark. On the first day we were the the water was green, then after that it was normal color. We're not sure what the... More

We went here after a stop at the Rocky statue where we were basically harassed by some homeless dude to let him take our picture. He wouldn't let us say no, so we caved. Anyways, the Philly Phlash dropped us off here and we were surprised to find the same homeless dude here! (I guess they move around frequently). This... More

This park is nice to see during the day, especially to see the famous Love statue. I would not go there at night though.
